"Afterglow" ©2005 Noella LeDrew - digital art from a drawing
The original piece is printed on handmade lokta paper from Nepal, then sewn to other layers of paper with an'X' in each corner using silver thread. These 'x's represent the Rune symbol "Gebo", which means partnership, a gift.
Here is an excerpt from the Book of Runes (by Ralph H. Blum) and the source of inspiration:
"... true partnership is achieved only by separate and whole beings who retain their separateness even as they unite. Remember to let the winds of heaven dance between you."
